59 Zephyrs spent Waitangi Weekend 2023 battling it out in 20+ knots on Wellington Harbour, with Mark "MarkO" Orams taking the win! A big thanks to host club Worser Bay Boating Club, RO Shayne Priddle & team, the event's sponsors, Zephyr Wines, XPL Composites, C-Tech, Linton Sails, and AQ Bags, Andrew Paterson for live streaming the racing for supporters to watch, photographers Alexander Garside, Dion Mead, and Bruce Jones, and LiveSailDie for helping promote our class to NZ sailors & sharing a race report while we were packing up the yachts!
More on the regatta + website updates to come once the team have had a post-Nationals breather, so watch this space, but for now... results.
